Among the varied uses to which reinforced concrete is now put the construction of bins for the storage of materials of various kinds takes an important place. Reinforced concrete bins have been constructed for holdiilg grain, coal, cement, ore, broken stone, sand, and other materials. It seems established now that not only does reinforced concrete possess in a supreme degree the qualities of fire-resistance and long life, in which respects it is superior to steel, that has been used largely for the construction of silos in preference to timber, but it originally costs no more and sometimes less than steel, while the cost of frequent painting and repairs is saved. Steel bins cost 50 to 100 per cent. more than timber bins of moderate size. H Kempton Dyson
